Eye drop recall: Florida woman sues company after eye removed

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, law

A Florida woman is suing an eye drop manufacture claiming that its product — which has been linked to a deadly bacteria outbreak — made her legally blind.

Sixty-eight-year-old Clara Elvira Oliva is taking legal action against Global Pharma Healthcare after suffering such a severe infection from using its EzriCare Artificial Tears that she had to have her eye removed, according to court documents.

Oliva’s right eye was removed and replaced with a plastic implant in September 2022 to control a “severe antibiotic resistant infection,” according to the lawsuit filed earlier this month in Federal court in Miami, Florida.
